New Leader Assimilation and Onboarding…
A vertically integrated approach to placing new leaders
Any time a new leader joins an organization there is a period of chaos and concern. The team knows that their world is about to change. This can be a significant emotional strain for most teams and organizations. You have a new leader, running as fast as they can to learn everything as fast as they possibly can. In the meantime, you have the team standing off to one side wondering who this new person really is and what’s about to change.
A new leader assimilation is an effective, non-threatening way to get both the leader and his/her team aligned, to get answers to the unspoken questions and concerns and to create a new platform for working together. The process is most effective when facilitated by an outside party, someone who doesn’t come with history or bias, and usually takes only one day. Conducting a new leader assimilation can have a positive sustained impact on the performance of the leader and team. Westport offers several options for new leader assimilations and can easily customize a process to meet your business need.
